Michael Eaves, Erin Calipari, Sean Farnham, Josh Hopkins, and Mike Pratt all walk into a video conference... There's no joke here, this is something that just casually happened. On Wednesday, Kentucky Men's Basketball live-streamed a fantasy draft where Erin Calipari, Farnham, Hopkins, and Pratt each drafted five players who all played during the John Calipari era at UK. After they picked their five, they then chose a sixth player that could come from any era. Eaves, who is a Kentucky alum and a current anchor SportsCenter, hosted the event. I would implore you to watch the full 40-minute video if quarantine boredom has struck you. The conversations were awesome and the personalities on the call are all quite unique. But we all know what you're here for: you want to know if Erin drafted Brad, don't you? Sorry, no spoilers, so keep scrolling. *Players are in order of when they were drafted*

Sean Farnham

Karl-Anthony Towns Jamal Murray De'Aaron Fox Immanuel Quickley Willie Cauley-Stein Jack "Goose" Givens

Josh Hopkins

DeMarcus Cousins John Wall Malik Monk Julius Randle Kevin Knox Jamal Mashburn

Mike Pratt

Bam Adebayo P.J. Washington Shai Gilgeous-Alexander Brandon Knight Darius Miller Dan Issel

Erin Calipari

Anthony Davis Devin Booker Michael Kidd-Gilchrist Eric Bledsoe Aaron Harrison Brad Calipari (I believe Ellen had some influence here...)
Now for the real question: which team is best? In terms of pure talent, it's hard to argue that Hopkins' team wouldn't stack up better against the other three. No offense to Brad, but he brings down his sister's team just a notch. Farnham's team would probably be the most thrilling to watch. If we're talking about the team I would cheer for the hardest, it has to be Pratt's unit. All five of his Cal-era players are in my top-10 favorite all-time Wildcats and the program's all-time leading scorer is the sixth man. That's the team I'm rolling with. What about you?
